As one ages and the eye’s lens loses its elasticity one might develop the eye condition called Presbyopia. Symptoms of presbyopia include irritated or tired eyes and headache. With reading glasses, one can compensate for the loss in sight and make the symptoms go away.
The first step to get the right reading glasses is to go through an eye examination. It is important that the glasses have the correct prescription. When you are holding a book at normal reading distance, the text should look clear. If you are working at the computer every day, computer glasses is a useful complement to your reading glasses.
Considering you are always putting on and removing your reading glasses, a glasses cord would be a good investment. That way, the glasses are always available around your neck whenever you need to use them. To extend the glasses’ durability, you should always grab them with both hands. That way the fitting shape of the glasses will be preserved longer.
The durability of the glasses will also be longer if you regularly polish them with soft cloth, clean them with a detergent and store them in a case. They should never be stored with the glass downward in the case, polished with clothing or be cleaned by a soap that contains fat.
